I had a very similar recipe that I couldn't find, so was glad to find this one. It is very similar, but the directions are a little different. I soaked all of the bran flakes in the hot water, and replaced the shortening with cinnamon applesauce. I tried to cut the sugar a little, but the batter didn't taste right, and was thin, so I added the rest of the sugar back in before baking. I also used rasin bran cereal, and also added another handful of dried mixed fruits (cranberries, golden raisins, and currants). I have always loved these muffins, and so did my kids. These are great warm with butter, but my kids even loved them cold as an after school snack. They said they are as good as any cup cake! Put this one in your recipe box and use it over and over!
